Current Employee - Fashion Model

I have been working at The Boston Globe full-time

Pros

Perfection as a person in the modeling world

Cons

Too Perfect as a person in the modeling world

Current Employee - Senior QA Engineer

I have been working at Rue Gilt Groupe full-time for more than a year

Pros

• Awesome tech team • Positive/supportive culture • Fast paced and dynamic • No limit to vacation time (and you're encouraged to use it) • Competitive pay • Flexible remote/WFH policy (even... before COVID) • Excellent work/life balance • Lots of opportunity for growth • Individuals are empowered to assume ownership and make an impact • I honestly look forward to working every morning

Cons

Not as tech focused as other places I've worked. Focus is primarily on sales and marketing and tech can feel like a service to other groups within the organization.

Advice to Management

Maybe rethink some of the models and assumptions that constrain our thinking and reconsider whether some of the things that make Rue different from other e-tailers are actually harmful to the... business. Let tech lead.
